A new Electromagnetic (EMC) Directive 2014/30/EU that came into force on the 20st of April 2016 covers all electrical equipment that is mains or battery powered and intended for the end user. The exclusion is the equipment that is already covered by other more specific Directive (ex. medical devices, military equipment and certain agricultural equipment), radio systems and telecommunication terminal equipment, and components/sub-assemblies with no intrinsic function (ex. plugs and sockets, capacitors, resistors and integrated circuits). All other products that fall under the scope of EMC Directive should comply with the technical and administrative requirements and bear the CE mark.
The main technical requirement of EMC Directive is that product must not emit unwanted electromagnetic pollution and must be immune to a reasonable amount of interference. The level of emission and immunity, the frequency band limits are not mentioned in the Directive itself, but are identified in the harmonized standards that are used to demonstrate compliance with the Directive.
The administrative requirements are related to the technical documentation, declaration of conformity and CE marking. As the EMC Directive was changed, these points require more attention. With new Directive 2014/30/EU the additional technical requirements and some updates for the Declaration of Conformity were announced.
The CE marking of electrical equipment requires deep knowledge of not only Electromagnetic Directive 2014/30/EU, but several Directives, as well as harmonized standards for electromagnetic compatibility. Our team of experts understands all the requirements and can perform complete CE certification of your equipment. Beside this, we perform the following services:
